  • The Bath Police Department is warning area residents that someone may be trying to scam money by using the name of a Bath teenager who was recently killed in a car accident.
    Bath police say they’ve received reports that someone has been making phone calls asking for donations in Nick Tillinghast’s memory to the Bath Youth Lacrosse program. The person has been asking for credit card numbers, police say.
    The family is asking for donations to Bath Youth Lacrosse in Tillinghast’s memory, but has not authorized phone solicitations. Anyone who gave a credit card donation over the phone is advised to cancel the transaction immediately. Anyone who receives such a call should hang up immediately.
    Anyone wishing to donate in Tillinghast’s memory should write a check payable to Bath Youth Lacrosse and send it to Tom Noteware, 6672 Muck Circle, Bath, N.Y. 14810.
    Tillinghast, 18, was killed Saturday in a pickup truck crash at the intersection of Bonny Hill Road and Windfall Road in Bath.
    Tillinghast graduated from Haverling High in June. He was an honor student who played several sports, including lacrosse.
    Tillinghast’s calling hours will be held from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday at Centenary United Methodist Church in Bath. Services will be held at the conclusion of calling hours at noon at the church. Burial will follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Hammondsport.
